In this room I can't cut any holes in the ceiling for exhausting the heat from those hoods. What would be another option?

The room will have a portable AC unit that exhausts out the window on the opposite side of the room. I don't think i'll bother running Co2 since it will all probably go out the window anyway.

Any ideas on how to set this room up? It will be the 3 lights over 18 plants.

And swap the raptors for adjust a wings if u do, way less hot aluminum in the room.
that part is NOT an option.

if i did do a window ac and kept the XXXL Magnums running should i keep a fan blowing air through the hoods or just remove the glass from the hoods and don't add a fan?

No need to air cool if you get 12000 btu window unit. Air Cooling SUCKS when you are co2 enriching. If your not air cooling the lens is only eating up your lumens and making your hood extra hot. If this is how your room will be for a few runs Adjusta wings would be an awesome upgrade for next time. Good luck brother!

The Raptors were literally JUST purchased. Switching to adjust a wings isn't an option.

Should I take the glass off the hoods?

why? if u run a big enough ac air cooling isnt gonna do nothing but suck all ur nice cool co2 enriched air out
The reason why is in the first post he said he might not be using CO2. Gutting a window AC and running your exhaust from the hoods wont bother co2 if he was to use it. As long as the hoods/ducting where air tight.

You can run outside air "IN" and exhaust the hot air next to the a/c and I like window banger way better thna portables.

This will work but "if" electricity costs matter it may be more econ to use aircooled with 1k's. I have run bare bulbs verts and yeild is up but is it from vert or ?

You could try putting an Ice Box on the end of each of the hoods. You can just scrub the heat from em and not have to worry about venting them outside. Expensive, but it will keep you from needing to add a window banger, and you can still add Co2, too!
